Broward County Schools has been using CareerScope since 1997 and it is available to all high school-level Exceptional Student Education students. CareerScope offers an excellent interest inventory and an aptitude test — I think these two features together make a great tool for not only Transition assessment, but also can be an effective tool in Transition IEP development. The reports that are generated are complete and extensive — it’s easy to administer and interpret.
The aptitude test can give students and staff a realistic look at their skills as they relate to a particular profession. For students that are not being realistic it can be a motivator and a “wake up call,” and for those students that underestimate their skills it can give them direction and hope that they can achieve beyond what they thought they could.

I want to thank you for the incredible tools your company provides! Without them, I would be completely lost in my role as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor/Evaluator and Transition Services Coordinator.

CareerScope is a time-saver since it’s self-directed and the reports are available immediately, but what I truly value about the program is the wide range of recommendations. CareerScope opens a new world of opportunities to our clients who often come in with limited expectations about what they are qualified to do. The CareerScope report is a real eye-opener for many of our clients.

As part of our facility’s requirements, we have each student complete a CareerScope assessment before they begin our careers class….This is a remarkable program that helps transition our students into the world of work.
